Welcome to the Ballan & District Community House

The Ballan & District Community House is a hive of activity with a variety of courses, groups and sessions providing the community with a friendly and happy atmosphere in which to develop skills, broaden interests and extend social contacts.

Our staff members and committee of management work together to ensure the Community House operates efficiently and in the best interests of Ballan and District.

A dedicated volunteer group provides invaluable support in the day to day administration and running of the Centre.

The Community House can be accessed through the main entrance of the Mechanics' Institute Hall located at 143 Inglis St, Ballan 76 Steiglitz Street, Ballan or by the rear entrance entry via Steiglitz St.

The Ballan & District Community House extends to you the invitation to drop in for a chat, a cuppa and the chance to discover a whole new world of opportunities and interests, as well as the guarantee of forming new friendships.
